MGMT: I know deadlifts are programmed for tomorrow, but can those of us who can't come in Wednesday squat as though it were a normal Tuesday where you can choose between Monday and Wednesday?

Happy not-laboring-day!

Squat: 317.5x5x3
Press: 107.5x5x2, 9
Clean: 185x2x3

Squats were ok, body is really creaky right now but the weight was moving. Press was ok, A little burned out on the rep out. Bailed on the last set of cleans, after the rep out it just wasn't in me. Will have to repeat it on Friday.

We've got almost 50 orders in for Kelly's book! Wow!

Fun labor day, went to Central Park with Sam and Herschel. Lovely day exploring and people watching, hope everyone else had a nice day too.

The press to handstand in the video is really difficult without a spotter. I feel like if I try it without someone there i'd immediately have to roll out of it.
